Premier League is harder than expected, acknowledged Chelsea striker Timo Werner and after enduring a poor run of form in front of the goal, he is struggling to adjust to the demands of the English top flight.
As quoted by Sky Sports, Werner acknowledged that while he thrives under the pressure of arriving as a new star, English football is ‘tougher’ than he initially thought, speaking about his acclimatization to his new world.
He said: “It does matter how much you cost. It’s always a bit of pressure when you come to a new club. But I think I can handle it very well. It’s not something new.”
“The pressure is a little bit higher than the previous years but I think good footballers are the best under pressure and that’s my plan, I can do very well under pressure.”
“The Premier League is a little bit different from my old league. It’s tougher than I thought. The contact here is harder than in Germany, it’s what I expected but not like this.”
